Program Needs Funds
When they didnít get grants they were counting on, the budget immediately went to half for the Summer Enrichment Program. The program operates for five weeks in the summer for special needs children. The primary point of the funding is to pay for the certified staff, a must when working with special needs students. The program involves both physical and mental activities. The program does everything from swimming with the kids to making sure they read and work out their brains during the summer. The children in the program range in age from one to age 21. The program is having a softball fundraiser in August, and they say they intend to keep on working to help the kids until there is no funding left. Of course, they are hoping to get some funding donations to assist the program in remaining operational. (CC)
